Want the manual for sony vgn-n38e


Link to the Service Manual, Donald,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-sony

That Sony VAIO VGN-N38e, is part of the Sony VAIO VGN-N series of Notebook PC's.

Scroll down to the 8th line that begins with the blue -> VGN-A
Scroll across, and click on the blue -> VGN-N

PDF file. and the computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
May take up to 30 seconds after you click on the file name (VGN-N), before the first page comes up.
The file is downloading in the background.

That is the Service Manual. It doesn't have board level component replacement.

Is there a board level component that you feel needs replaced?
What are the symptoms of the laptop?

Power issues, if not the AC adapter, (Charger), or DC Power Jack; are related to the Power MOSFET's on the power circuit of the motherboard; and may also have bad MLCC's in that circuit.
(Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitor)

[DC Power Jack is part of the circuit. Where it is attached look at those P.MOSFET's.
Example using HP Pavilion dv6000 series, and Pavilion dv9000 series of Notebook PC's,

http://mayohardware.blogspot.com/2010/04/important-parts-on-dv6000-and-dv9000.html

These series of HP's use the Fairchild Semiconductor International - FDS6679 - Power MOSFET, and the Alpha & Omega - AO4407 - P.MOSFET.

Looking at the second photo down, with the AO4407 circled in Yellow; look at the small rectangular object to the immediate right, that has a wide dark band on it.

There is one above it of the same size, and one above that one.
There is also one to the right of the top one.

These are MLCC's.

http://www.mouser.com/Search/Refine.aspx?Keyword=FDS6679

Scroll down.

http://www.mouser.com/Search/Refine.aspx?Keyword=AO4407

AO4407 has been phased out. List shows cross-references.

http://www.mouser.com/Passive-Components/Capacitors/Ceramic-Capacitors/Multilayer-Ceramic-Capacitors-MLCC-SMD-SMT/_/N-b2cj?P=1z0wrjcZ1z0x565

Just 4.7Mfd examples at 16 Volts.
Do not know the values of yours ]

Electrolytic Capacitor/s replacement?

OH, just cleaning the laptop out?
S'okay I was just letting you know board level replacement is possible.
(Does kinda' depend on your de-soldering/soldering skills, though)

Disassemble sony vaio vgn-b100b


1) Remove all power to the laptop.
Unplug the AC adapter (Charger) and remove the Battery.

2) I suggest you wear an ESD wrist strap. Connect the alligator clip of the ESD wrist strap to a good Ground source.
(I connect the clip to the metal frame of an empty desktop computer case)

This is an example of an ESD wrist strap,
(Electro Static Discharge)

http://www.hotdealshop.com/html/productOverviewNew.aspx?prdId=23733FR030910

You can see the price of this one is under $4.
Perhaps some 'Mom and Pop' computer repair shop will have one.
Maybe cheaper.

Reasoning for ESD wrist strap;
Static electricity.

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.
(Some examples: Processor, Harddrive, Ram Memory, Graphics Card, or GPU, etc.)

The ESD wrist strap will relieve your body of Static.
(If a person's budget will not allow this expenditure, you could fashion a homemade version)

3) There may be as many as 60 plus screws, and 10 different types. Do Not mix them up!

Some of the screws look to be the same size, and have the same thread. Nope!

Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove. Label each compartment, for the area of the laptop that you removed the screw from.
You can use a clean egg carton in a pinch, and label each egg holder.
(I work on laptops, and use them anyway. Saves on cost)

4) Laptops are disassembled from the top going down. There is no removing just the bottom cover.

If you are going to completely disassemble the laptop, the LCD display assembly will be removed first.

Then the Keyboard/Hinge Cover. (Plastic strip above the Keyboard, and below the LCD screen)

Next Keyboard, static Shield Cover, and then you can access the internal hardware parts.
(Processor Heatsink Assembly, Processor, and so on)


A) Service Manual (Free)

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-sony

Under the heading Sony, go down to the bottom row.
Begins with VGN-A
Go to the right, and left-click on VGN-B

(The Sony VAIO VGN-B100b is one of the VGN-B series)

This is a PDF file. Give it a few seconds, and it will download.

(Watch the download progress bar, let the file download all the wat before looking through it.

The computer you are using has Adobe Reader on it. Adobe Reader uses PDF files.
The file will automatically download, and open.

If you do not have the latest version of Adobe Reader, suggest you upgrade. Adobe Reader 9.3.4. )

The above free Service Manual has photos, and instructions.
Not as concise, and clear as I myself, would like, but you may find it to be a useful resource.
You can save it to your computer, and burn a copy off to CD disk.

This link also has photos, and instructions, but is for the Sony VAIO VGN-BX.

It's a step by step, with clear photos. You can left-click on each photo to enlarge them.

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/disassemble-sony-vaio-vgn-bx-series-laptop/

Should this be your first time disassembling a laptop, or a VAIO VGNB100b, you may find the above useful.

Sony Vaio VGN-NR498E recovery disk


Hello

Well, the recovery disks won't allow you to go to your present system. The recovery disks are designed to put everything back the way it was when you bought the computer, minus all your applications and data. If it's your data that you need then a reputable repair service like mine can slave your hard drive to another system and recover all your data (not applications), provided the hard drive has not electronically or mechanically malfunctioned. Again, a reputable repair person can tell you the status of the hard drive.

Thanks

Is it mounted on the handlebar? Try pushing down gently and then twist 90 degrees. It should come away from the bar mount. It attaches the same way in reverse.
